set up KMS cluster?

Jump to solution

i have a server lab datacenter with vSphere v6.7, and i'm trying to deploy the KMS into it.

the infrastructure included two clusters and each cluster has several esxi hosts, and a KMS virtual machine is deployed.

however, after some tries, the setup still failed.

the document Set Up the KMS Cluster described how to complete the kms setup but i'm wondering about the configuration.

as shown in figure below,

the doubts are:

1. does the "KMS cluster" mean the KMS VM cluster? or the ESXi host cluster where KMS located on?

2. the "server name" means the KMS's DNS name or virtual machine name?

3. does the "server port" mean the port on vCenter(to connect the kms)?

it is strange that my KMS setup hanging at "cannot establish trust connection" but i couldn't verify whether the settings are correct or not even i had tried different parameters.

anyone knows?:smileyconfused:
